FOX’s Terry Bradshaw Rips Falcons HC Arthur Smith: “I Have No Respect For Him”

A lot of Atlanta Falcons aren’t a fan of head coach Arthur Smith and they are not alone.

During Sunday’s FOX NFL Sunday pregame show, Terry Bradshaw ripped the Falcons head coach to shreds for benching quarterback Desmond Ridder.

“I have no respect for Arthur Smith. He Messed with that young quarterback Desmond Ridder like that, and you set him back. Play the young man. Leave him alone. Don’t lie to him. And Smith lied to him. And he needs to get his butt whooped! Nothing upsets me more than when someone lies to me.”

Taylor Heinicke led the Falcons to a much-needed win by completing 23 of 33 passes for 229 yards with one touchdown pass and no interceptions in a 29–10 win over the Colts.


The Falcons (7–8) play at the Chicago Bears next week, with kickoff scheduled for 1 p.m. ET on Dec. 31.
